Jennifer vest, $1,125, Caryn top, $295, and Leslie pant, $675.
There’s no better way to get you out the door in the morning than with an outfit that makes a statement—at least so is the case for SCAD graduate Caroline Ruder. The darling clothing designer recently launched the Caroline Ann. collection, full of ensembles based on the philosophy that the right attire can turn any day into an occasion. Inspired by the nostalgia of childhood memories at the beach and the goal of sophistication in mind, the Caroline Ann. collection encapsulates elegance that guarantees timelessness. Boasting eye-catching colors and polished elements, Ruder’s pieces promise equal parts bold and beautiful; after all, “sophistication and confidence go hand in hand,” according to Ruder. Shop the striking looks online, or peruse her trunk shows around the area—her fall/winter 2019 collection with more vibrant hues and punchy prints is available for preorder now.
